ESKOM AND MOSSEL BAY MUNICIPALITY

Home-owners in the Mossel Bay, Dana Bay, Hartenbos, Great Brak River, Little Brak River and Glentana areas are requested to join hands with the Mossel Bay Municipality and Eskom to help reduce the electrical demand – by participating in a programme aimed at installing appliance control devices connected to their geysers, making it possible to switch them on and off remotely. The control units will be installed at no cost to the home-owners.

This Residential Load Management (RLM) project forms part of Mossel Bay’s demand management initiative in the region. Geysers account for between 30 and 50% of the electricity consumption in a household and this makes them an ideal starting point for electricity demand management in the residential sector. The main advantage of the load management system is that the relay system can switch the heating element off during times of peak demand.

The RLM project in Mossel Bay works as follows: a small control unit (relay) is installed next to or inside the electrical distribution board in the home of the customer. This device then switches off the power supply to the geyser between 18:00 and 20:00 on weekdays.

Powertech IST, an Energy Services Company (ESCo), has been appointed by Eskom to implement the RLM programme in Mossel Bay Municipality. According to Mr Gerard van der Merwe, Manager: Utilities, Municipalities and Commercial Business Unit at Powertech IST, qualified contractors have been appointed by the company to install relays at houses in the following high-consumption areas from the first week of March 2012:

Mossel Bay:

·         Point, De Bakke, Santos, Central, Da Nova, Heiderand, Mossel Bay Golf Estate, Santos Haven, Blombos, Ocean Ridge, Village on Sea.

Great Brak River:

·         Bergsig, Eureka, Southern Cross, Hersham, Island.

Little Brak River:

·         Fraaiuitsig, Reebok, Little Brak River, Tergniet

Hartenbos:

·         Hartenbos Hills, Hartenbos, ATKV, Diaz Beach, Island View, Seemeeu Park, Menkenkop

Glentana:

·         Botha Strand, Pienaar Strand, Outeniqua Strand

Danabaai

Home-owners are being assured that only approved and trained contractors with proper identity cards (displaying logos of Eskom, Mossel Bay Municipality and Powertech IST) will visit homes to install the control units. Access should only be granted to contractors who display their identity cards.   

Customers can contact the RLM Project Office on 083 228 0268 for more information.
